Leading off as the inaugural coin in the series is this magnificent Elephant struck in one Troy ounce of highly-pure 99.9% silver by the prestigious South African Mint the same mint that brings us the iconic gold and silver Krugerrands. Its also the same mint responsible for the immensely popular Natura series that began in the 1990s and featured the same Big 5 animals. The obverse of this legal-tender 5-Rand coin depicts a full-bodied image of an elephant. The reverse features a unique bisected image of an elephants profile.When multiple coins are placed side by side it creates a complete close-up portrait of an elephant. If you dare, put on some thin white gloves and trace your fingers across the rugged design it almost feels like you're caressing the torso of a real elephant!
